A $4 million construction project officially got underway October 8 in Wyoming, as groundbreaking was celebrated for the Xccent manufacturing facility.

The project site is to the east edge of I-35, and the south end of Wyoming, on the newly constructed 257th Street. The contractor is R.J. Ryan Companies.

Xccent is a manufacturer of playground assemblies, outdoor furniture, decking and other materials. It also provides metal fabricating services, and does PVC and powder coating. Xccent is hoping to create 59 jobs during the construction phase of its project, and an estimated 70 fulltime equivalent positions are to be created in the first year (job availability starting in 2011) at the new facility.

Xccent is coming to Wyoming from a facility it has outgrown in Osceola, Wisconsin.

The company has qualified for a state JOBZ tax benefits package that allows for taxes to continue to be collected on the property, but will not include the value of site improvements for a number of years. Wyoming also has a JOBZ site that was established in 2004 to incentivize the construction of the Polaris Research & Development.

Pictured are various local and state officials who were involved in bringing this project to Wyoming, along with Xccent executives.

Wyoming City officials also spent much time working with Xccent to provide city services for the development, and installing a new road into the site.
